Keywords:Mortality, Cancer, Health Information Systems, Temporal Distribution
Objective: To describe the mortality trend from all causes of cancer and the five main causes in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, from 2000 to 2015. Methods: This is a descriptive, ecological, time series study, with data referring to deaths of residents of Mato Grosso due to neoplasms (ICD-10 codes C00 to C97), from the Mortality Information System (SIM). Time trend analyzes of the standardized mortality rate from all causes of cancer and five specific causes of cancer (lung, prostate, breast, colorectal and cervix) for the state and according to macroregions (South, West, North, East and Center -North) were performed using linear regression (p-value<0.05). Results: From 2000 to 2015, 28,525 deaths from all causes of cancer in residents of the state of Mato Grosso were recorded. An increasing trend was observed for all causes of cancer, in addition to lung, breast and colorectal cancers. Southern and Northern macroregions showed an increasing trend for all causes, breast and colorectal; North-Central for breast and colorectal. East was increasing for all causes, prostate and colorectal, and decreasing for cervix. Conclusions: In the state of Mato Grosso, there was an increasing trend in mortality from all causes of cancer and from specific causes, with emphasis on breast and colorectal cancer in most macroregions.
